Took the VEPRnov to the range to live fire test the TAPCO 10rnd AK74 5.45 mags and they work great!
Ran 50 rounds through two different mags. Not a single hiccup. At a 1/3 of the cost of factory mags you can't beet them for price and they look pretty good in the rifle.
Keep in mind if you have not followed some of my other posts. The VEPRnov has been modified to accept surplus high cap mags. So if you have a factory rifle and want to use these mags you will need a bullet guide and will have to file a few mm's of material from the mag catch for these to work properly. In doing so there are other 922r concerns that you'll also need to address because the rifle will be modified to be capable of accepting high cap magazines. As with any modification nothing can be guaranteed to work 100% every time with 100% of all VEPR's. I'd venture a guess and say you shouldn't have any problems if Bulgy Circle 10's or Beryl magazines run well in your rifle.
Here are some photos of the mag with ammo and in the VEPRnov. I did not take pictures of myself shooting, nor did I take an video because I can only do so many things at one time.
You can get these from Greg @ Carolina Shooter Supply.
Thanks Greg @ CSS and Captain Hero for helping with this project!
